All in the Family

Lee Kiefer / fencingFor Kiefer, fencing has truly been a family affair. Her father, Steven, was a team captain for the men’s fencing team at Duke University.

Not many student-athletes can call themselves Olympians before they ever set foot on a college campus.

Having competed internationally with the world’s elite, sophomore fencer Lee Kiefer has shined on every stage. She is currently ranked as the top women’s foilist in the Junior division and the No. 2 foilist in the Senior division in the country, according to USA Fencing.

At just the age of 18, Kiefer traveled across the Atlantic to compete in the 2012 Olympic Games in London. She contributed to the United States women’s team’s sixth-place finish in the Team Foil competition, and placed fifth overall in the Women’s Individual Foil competition.
